Abel to Yzerman

Hello California! Join The Late Live Blog Tonight

Good news!  After tonight, only one more late start and that happens Saturday night in Los Angeles.

After that, the Wings latest start will be four 8:00pm ET games.  Three of those are of the Rivalry Night type against Chicago, Boston and Pittsburgh and the other is this Sunday in Anaheim.

Now on to the game..

Babcock says the first 10 minutes are important, I say the rest 40 are too.

The Wings are well rested and should be ready to play when the puck drops. 

No Helm or Datsyuk, but let's hope Jimmy comes up big again.

We watch late, we want a win, so why not make it happen?

It is a live blog bitches...

um, ... 50 minutes?

I say 60 of good hockey, get the “W” and 2-points.

We’re in a must win situation tonight.

So we better get a full 60 and two points. We can’t afford any more fuchups.

Muchas gracias, Paul.

Canes romped all over the Laffs, 6-1.  Blabcock wants separation?  Here’s a golden opportunity to make good on that.

Not so fast.

Washington just beat Tampa Bay 4-3. This means, at this very moment, the Wings are no longer in a playoff position.

Under a minute left in the game, the Caps broke a 3-3 deadlock and beats the Bolts 4-3.

Traction?  Separation?  Earn it, Wings.

Thanks for being one of us die hards, Paul.

Wings did seem to come to play last season when the skate was to their throats. Let’s see if that works out this year, with a nice mid-season test run to see exactly what this team is made of.

Are we a hard-working, well-oiled machine? Or are we just full of crap?  I guess we’ll find out at the conclusion of tonight’s game.

Right.  Tonight’s game becomes even more important.  Any way we can get two points, we have to get them.

Heh.  I did a refresh of TSN’s wild card standings and it’s the Canes who now own one of the two wild card spots.

Hope I can stay awake for this one, been really dragging this week, after being off for Christmas.

Posted by Alan from Atlanta on 01/09/14 at 10:13 PM ET

I still see the wings clinging onto the last playoff spot, I must be missing something.  Who passed them?

I miscalculated, then. I thought the Rangers had more points than Washington.

Doesn’t make this game any less important for us, though. We *must* win.

Ken:  “Marc Edouard-Vlasic.  The fine young defenseman.”

You mean like the time he tripped up Zata behind the net when the Wings scored a goal?

I guess the team feels we need a little extra adversity.

I mean, we’re already inches away from losing the playoff spot we currently occupy. Why not go down early in the game while we’re at it?

I was thinking that the other day.

That was a great strategy when your guy at the point was Nicklas Freaking Lidstrom.  Kronner, I love you, you’re great, but you’re no Nick Lidstrom.
